Gleaning volunteers can work with your schedule. Whether you need rejected produce culled, a whole pallet picked up, or multiple fields harvested with 30 volunteers, we will work with you to find the easiest way to remove your excess. The coordinator can also check in via phone or email throughout the season at the farmer's convenience.
Farmers that work with the Gleaning Project are not liable for potential damage from their crop or to volunteers. Produce donated through the Gleaning Project is covered by the Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act and volunteers are covered by Pierce Conservation District insurance.
We encourage volunteers and community members to support our partner farms. Hosting gleaning events on your farm strengthens community connections and visibility.
Get food to those in need:
We donate all harvested and culled produce to the emergency food system. If a farmer is willing, we like to allow volunteers to take home one serving of produce each to taste what they harvested!
Tax Write Off:
All farmers receive a donation receipt which can be used as a tax write off.
